Keurig is one of the most recognizable names in coffee. Known for its array of pod-based machines, the company helped spark the 21st-century wave of single-serve brewing.

These convenient coffee makers can be found everywhere from offices to dorm rooms, and the collection is extensive enough to suit a variety of needs. Some machines are designed to save space on cluttered countertops. Others come with milk frothers to craft lattes and cappuccinos right from home. Keurig now even produces its signature K-Cups for more than just coffee drinkers, with myriad options for tea and hot chocolate.

Here are the best Keurigs of 2020. Just pop in a pod and go.

Best Overall: Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker

There’s no doubt that this brushed gold coffee maker will look elegant on your counter, taking its place as coffee royalty. But it doesn't just look good. This machine also gives you plenty of options, including 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, or 12-ounce serving sizes to fit all of your favorite coffee mugs; a "strong brew" button; and an iced setting to give you a delicious coffee over ice. If you're craving tea, this Keurig also can dispense hot water straight to your mug.

The reservoir holds 75 ounces, so you'll only need to refill every couple of days. The drip tray is removable so you can easily fill a travel mug, and it’s large enough to hold a full mug's worth of liquid. The machine comes with six K-Cup pods to get you started, plus a water filter and a filter handle you can install if you'd like.

Best for Small Spaces: Keurig K-Mini Plus Coffee Maker

When you have no space to spare, you’ll appreciate this mini Keurig that’s just about as wide as a coffee mug. It still has features you’ll love, like the ability to brew between 6 and 12 ounces of coffee or choose a stronger brew. This option saves space with a small, removable reservoir that holds just enough for one cup of coffee.

Even with the small footprint, Keurig came up with a smart way to provide you with easy K-cup storage. When the machine isn't in use, you can slide a storage container right where your mug would usually sit to store up to nine K-cups at a time. The machine turns off 90 seconds after it's finished brewing to save power, but it heats up quickly when you're ready for another cup.

Best Commercial: Keurig Office Pro Commercial Coffee Maker

Great for businesses or for families that take their coffee drinking very seriously, this machine is ready to work. A touch screen controls the brew temperature and other settings, like cup size, and even lets you program automatic on/off settings. You can select 4, 6, 8, or 10-ounce servings and choose mild to strong flavor, so everyone can have their coffee exactly the way they like it in less than a minute for each cup.

The drip tray is removable, so you can fill a travel mug or taller cup of coffee easily. The water reservoir is removable and holds 90 ounces, so you can make up to 18 cups of coffee before it needs a refill. Unlike some commercial brewers, this one cannot be hooked up to a plumbing line. The machine comes with a variety pack of 12 K-Cup pods to get you started.

Best Basic: Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker

Just looking for a standard Keurig machine? This pick is good for anyone who enjoys a basic morning cup without too many frills. It can brew 6-, 8-, and 10-ounce cups in less than a minute and has a 48-ounce removable water reservoir that’s easy to refill. It's as easy as it gets to make a cup, you just insert the K-Cup, choose a brew size, and start the brew.

If your Keurig won’t be used throughout the day, you can program the auto-off feature to turn the machine off after it has been idle for two hours. A descale button makes cleaning your machine a breeze. This model is available in black and a deep red, both of which will look sleek and stylish on your counter.

Best Budget: Keurig K-Compact Coffee Maker

Great for small spaces and small budgets, this little brewer can make 6-, 8-, or 10-ounce cup sizes in under a minute with an auto-off feature that shuts the machine down when it's not in use to save energy. The 36-ounce reservoir is removable for easy filling and cleaning. With the drip tray removed, this model can accommodate travel mugs, so you can take your coffee with you on the road. The K-Compact comes in four colors, so you can match your kitchen design or use it to add a little pop of color to your home.

Best for Carafe Brewing: Keurig K-Duo Plus Coffee Maker

The Keurig K-Duo Plus is the best of both coffee worlds. Not only does it offer the company's signature single-serve brewing, it also includes a 12-cup thermal carafe for when one cup just isn't enough. And the options don't end there. When using the carafe, you can brew 6, 8, 10, or the full 12 cups; when using the single-serve setting, you can fill your mug with 6, 8, 10, or 12 ounces. Another handy feature is that the K-Duo Plus can be programmed to brew up to 24 hours in advance, which is a unique luxury among Keurigs.

The K-Duo Plus is a newer iteration of the K-Duo—the latter being a cheaper but bulkier option. The two share similar features overall, but the main difference is that the K-Duo Plus has only one brewing spout for both carafe and single-serve. This saves a lot of space width-wise, though users should keep in mind that the K-Duo Plus is fairly tall, so measure your cupboards ahead of time.

Best for Home-Ground Coffee: Keurig K-Select Coffee Maker

Since this Keurig is compatible with the My K-Cup Universal Reusable Coffee Filter (sold separately), you can either buy whole bean coffee, grind it at home, and brew it in your Keurig, or make a cup using your favorite K-Cup pods. This machine can brew 6, 8, 10, and 12-ounce cups, and the strong brew feature lets you brew a more intense cup.

With the drip tray removed, this machine can accommodate your favorite travel mug, so you can take a cup to go. The removable water reservoir holds up to 52 ounces, so you can brew plenty of coffee before you have to refill. The K-Select is simple to operate, with buttons to choose your cup size and lights that indicate when you need to add water or descale the coffee maker. The coffee maker comes with six K-Cup pods, a water filter handle, and one filter.

Best Splurge: Keurig K-Cafe Coffee, Latte, and Cappuccino Maker

Prefer lattes and cappuccinos to regular drip coffee? You can still get those next-level drinks, thanks to this Keurig. It has a dishwasher-safe milk frother, making the foamed drinks of your dreams incredibly easy to make in the morning. This model can brew regular cups of coffee as well as make concentrated "shots" of coffee from either your favorite K-cup variety or from your own coffee, with the My K-Cup Universal Reusable Coffee Filter (sold separately). You can also brew a stronger cup when you want more flavor, and you can choose between 6, 8, 10, or 12-ounce servings.

With the drip tray removed, the K-Cafe can fit a 7.2-inch tall to-go cup. The water reservoir holds 60 ounces, so you can make five extra-large cups of coffee before you need to refill.
